Pattern: Ishbel by Ysolda
yarn: Bloom by Yarn Treehouse .. ebay store
I used the yarn double throughout the project which would give me half the amount of yardage which ended up being 440yards. That was more than enough to finish this with quite a bit left over. I had originally wanted to knit the st. st part of the shawl in the smaller size and then the lace part in the larger size. ( the pattern gives both directions for a small and large size) but after reading project info on ravelry , it seemed that people needed more yardage to knit the larger lace portion. So I decided to be safe and just knit the smaller lace part. After finishing the shawl and having so much yarn left over.. I realized that there was most definetly enough yarn to knit the larger lace portion... so my only regret is that I didn't go for it. I love it anyway.. it is so light and airy and bright and the beads at the edge give it just enough wieght for a real pretty drape.
Speaking of ravelry.. maybe we should all be a little more accurate with posting yardage amounts and other info. Also , off the subject.. how did my queue get so large. There is no way I could knit all those projects in this life time. I went through it a little yesterday on my day off and cleaned it up, removing some projects that I no long think I want to knit. I can always add them again later if I want. (^_^)
